Animal Aid Unlimited, an animal rescue organization, received a call about a gravely wounded dog that had taken shelter in the room of an abandoned building.
When rescuers arrived on the scene, what they found was shocking.
Huddled in a dark corner was a dog with a ghastly wound on his head. It was split open from ear to ear and crawling with maggots. The dog was clearly in excruciating pain and his time was running out.
The Animal Aid Rescue Team used bits of food to coax the dog out of the corner. They wrapped him in a blanket and took him to the transport truck.
Once the dog arrived at the facility, he was sedated in order to undergo emergency medical treatment for his festering head wound.
After eight weeks of intensive treatment, the dog, named Cubby, had a brand new lease on life.
